Courses for everyone 3

Pro­fes­sion­als with both man­age­ment and IT skills are a valu­able com­mod­i­ty in the job mar­ket, as orga­ni­za­tions strive to get val­ue from their IT invest­ments in our evolv­ing tech­nol­o­gy land­scape. Com­bined exper­tise in these two areas allows busi­ness and IT pro­fes­sion­als to sup­port orga­ni­za­tions effec­tive­ly and bring them up to speed in adopt­ing inno­va­tion at the right time.

In this pro­gram, you will devel­op in-demand skills need­ed to ensure that your IT port­fo­lios are cost-effec­tive and strate­gi­cal­ly aligned with your organization’s goals, as well as explore IT gov­er­nance mod­els and dis­cuss strate­gies that embrace inno­va­tions and deploy them seam­less­ly. You’ll also acquire valu­able knowl­edge about frame­works, method­olo­gies, and new tech­nolo­gies, all of which will help you become a leader able to posi­tion your orga­ni­za­tion for success.

The series is com­prised of three cours­es, each of them designed to stand alone in pro­vid­ing spe­cif­ic IT man­age­ment skills. Work­shops can also be tak­en togeth­er to pro­vide stu­dents with a com­pre­hen­sive IT man­age­ment skill set. We rec­om­mend that stu­dents take the cours­es in this order: EXCPE 3022, EXCPE 3023, EXCPE 3021
